With years of posts, I still wonder if...

Is it possible to subscribe to some threads and get email notifications, but not on other threads? Can I choose?

Can you give me a quick reminder on how to use Multi-quote. I think I used it before, but I can't recall how.

Lastly, a comment, ... You guys are great!

(1) Click on "thread tools" at the top right of the thread and choose "subscribe to this thread." You'll get your options there.

(2) To Multi-Quote, click on the Multi Quote button on every thread you want to include except the last one. On the last one, click the Quote button.

Thanks! While I always use Threat Tools, for some reason my mind would gloss over those notification options. I never "absorbed" them event though they were in front of my face.

Obviously your multi-quote reminder helped, too. :)

:lol: Ooops. I think I just invented a new site feature. Maybe for premium members.

I'm usually "typing" on my Wii- not easy.

I have a question about addig pictures in posts. The way I have been able to do it is to go to Manage Attachments, browse and select. This makes a thumbnail, but I see others add larger pics right in the post. How do you add a large pic to the post itself? Is there a preferred method? Thanks for the help.

Good question.
I'd like to know the answer to that question also, sometimes I don't even get the thumbnails to show, just the link.

It needs to be a pic that's hosted somewhere (web shot, pic on photobucket, etc.).

Then you just click the picture icon above the posting box:

Posted Image

and cut and paste the link to the picture.

Thanks, this is the info I was looking for. I am not very good this stuff, I guess it would be easier for everyone if I opened up an account somewhere for pics.

I then assume that DBSTalk doesn't have to store the picture when posting this way.
